Warner Bros. secures rights to The Forever War, set to star Channing Tatum

1 May 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has reported that the bidding war between Warner Bros. Pictures and Sony Pictures over the 41-year-old sci-fi novel The Forever War by Joe Haldeman has been won by Warner Bros.

Richard Edlund had held the rights to the book for around 27 years, and the project had previously been set up at Fox for few years, with Ridley Scott attached to direct.

But many failed attempts later, Warner will now attempt to resuscitate the project, with Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher) attached to star and Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange) set to try his luck at scripting in what the studio is hoping could prove to be a new franchise.

Week in Review: Rip ‘Lotr’ cinematographer Andrew Lesnie

1 May 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This week saw a number of sad losses in the entertainment industry. The singers of both “Louie Louie” and “Stand by Me” passed away this week, as well as Oscar-nominated screenwriter Don Mankiewicz, who was nominated for I Want to Live! Mankiewicz was the son of Herman J. Mankiewicz (Citizen Kane) and the nephew of Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve), and the father of John Mankiewicz (House of Cards). He was 93.

But perhaps most shocking was the loss of cinematographer Andrew Lesnie, who died suddenly this week at just 59 years old. Lesnie won an Oscar for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and he subsequently filmed all five of the remaining Lotr films and Peter Jackson’s King Kong and The Lovely Bones. Some of his more interesting credits are his work on Babe and Babe: Pig in the City. Lesnie’s last film however »

Academy Sci-Tech Awards: Women Stand To Make a Point and Margot Robbie Soars

8 February 2015 12:17 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Over the years, the Academy’s Scientific & Technical Awards banquet has been called many things: warm, intimate, classy and, at its best, emotional.

But one description that has never been associated with the Sci-Techs is “a hoot.”

Until tonight.

For 2015 the Sci-Techs traded a smidgen of elegance for a few megawatts of electricity, much of it provided by Margot Robbie.

Robbie co-hosted the presentation with Miles Teller, and the pair bantered like a comedy team. Both had moments to shine and each got laughs, but it was Robbie who stole the show, bringing a loose charm and infectious energy to her hosting duties. She turned what could have been a laborious litany of technical jargon into a lively and sometimes uproarious evening.

Some 59 individuals were honored at the banquet. One of the early presentations showed why the Sci-Techs can be endearing: As honoree Steven Tiffen stepped up to accept an Award of Commendation, »

That may be Greek to most of us, but it makes sense to the Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards Committee, which on Tuesday announced that those achievements, and 16 others, will be the recipients of this year’s Scientific and Technical Academy Awards.
